One year later, Philip of Alsace had his protégé married to his niece, Isabelle of Hainaut, offering the County of Artois and other Flemish territories as dowry, much to the dismay of Baldwin V. Count Philips wife Elisabeth died in 1183, and Philip Augustus seized the province of Vermandois on behalf of Elisabeths sister, Philip then remarried, to Matilda of Portugal. Philip gave Matilda a dower of a number of major Flemish towns, when Countess Margaret I died in 1194, Flanders descended to her eldest son Baldwin, who ruled as Baldwin IX, Count of Flanders. In 1186, the younger Baldwin had married Marie of Champagne, daughter of Count Henry I of Champagne, the chronicler Gislebert describes Baldwin as being infatuated with his young bride, who nevertheless preferred prayer to the marital bed. Immediately after this arrangement, the count of Hainauts son Baldwin, thirteen years old, received as wife Marie and this Marie began sufficiently young to devote herself to divine obedience in prayers, vigils, fasts and alms.

Also he reinstated the Bianco worth 1/2 denaro, which had not been minted for twenty years and he debased the denaro and its fractions, whereas the grosso was kept at 98. 5% pure silver to ensure its usefulness for foreign trade. Enricos revolutionary changes made the grosso the dominant currency for trade in the Mediterranean and contributed to the wealth, in later years, the value of the grosso would climb relative to the increasingly debased denaro, until it was itself debased in 1332. Soon after the introduction of the grosso, the denaro began to be referred to as the piccolo, literally grosso means large one and piccolo means small one. In 1202 the knights of the fourth Crusade were stranded in Venice, Dandolo developed a plan that allowed the Crusaders debt to be suspended if they assisted the Venetians in capturing Zadar, which was under Hungarian rule, on the eastern Adriatic coast.

9. Nicholas of Verdun – Nicholas of Verdun was a French artist, one of the most famous goldsmiths and enamelists of the Middle Ages. He was a figure in Romanesque art, and the leading figure of Mosan art in his day. He created shrines, figurines and candlesticks decorated with precious stones and he traveled around Europe to fulfill major commissions. During the last quarter of the 12th century, steps were being taken towards Classical Antiquity by a Mosan metalworker, Nicholas was a remarkable French enamelist and goldsmith of the Middle Ages. His work transitions from late Romanesque to early Gothic styles, during his career he spent most of his time traveling to different locations where he was commissioned to develop most of his work.1180. The work reveals his master metalworking and the technique of champlevé enameling and his even more notable Shrine of the Three Kings in the Cologne Cathedral, about 1200, would be an even more appropriate example drawing the observer towards classical representations of Antiquity. Nicholas of Verdun was an innovator and a master metalworker and it was no accident that his work development occurred in the medium of metal making. The records indicate that most of his work ranges from figurines, for metalworkers the process of beating metal was initially performed in the development of works of art, but after c.1150 casting became a more prevalent technique for sculptors. Through these formative stages a process of modeling rather than carving was being performed and this allowed artists to gain more movement and gesture, and to work in miniature scales which allowed the metalworkers to show and explore their talents in a more productive fashion. Color during the Romanesque period was dearest to the Romanesque patrons of the arts and this made the use of enameling ideal during this time period. Translucent glaze was a new addition in art which epitomized what was perhaps the most deeply felt urge in aesthetics of the high Middle Ages and this was particularly popular in Western Europe. Artists were using it to develop a sense of mystic appeal particularly through jewelry, through various arts in Western Europe during the Romanesque period metalwork occupied central significance. Metalwork at this time was considered as an art form and its purpose was what granted its significance in the art world, the objects made were intriguing and innovative and its presence served a great significance in altars and reliquaries of great churches. Prestigious figures would show off their wealth and power through a vehicle of grand vessels made out of precious materials, Romanesque patrons and people were highly religious and superstitious and as a sign to show off their hierarchy and pomp they used precious materials. Today, there are very few reliquary caskets that have survived from the 12th century, but the system of arches during the Romanesque period, particularly on reliquaries and churches, grew grander in order to remind the people of Biblical events and their meaning. These ideals and ways continued through the Gothic period, and in many ways Romanesque art was considered to be a version that transitioned into the Gothic period. Certain tendencies already present in the Romanesque period were fulfilled in the Gothic and this applies to both art and architecture, where Christian themes were done through thoughtful reflections conveyed through medieval imagery. Gothic art is characterized as the point between the classical world of Rome and Greece
